Counting From Different Starting Points

Activity: Number Line

You will need: Numberblocks number line


First, make sure your child can confidently count to 10. Use the number line to see if they can recognise the numerals 1 to 10.

Point to a number on the number line and say the number. Then move your finger along the number line and get your child to say what number you land on each time. For instance, if you point at the number 3, your child should start counting from 3 to 10.

Repeat a few times making sure to start at different numbers. Once your child has mastered this skill, they can do the activity independently.
